Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.- 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Hey y’all! It’s Thursday, which means another installment of Thankful Thursday and today, I am thankful for…my push mower!

A few days ago, I was outside trying to mow the yard with our push mower. Between the heat, the sloping yard, and having to stop and start to take care of the kids, my motivation was wearing thin. My thoughts kept returning to ,”I really wish we had a riding mower like the our other neighbors.” Almost as soon as I thought that, I felt God telling me, “At least you have a yard to mow. At least you have the strength and ability to push the mower. Be thankful for your situation.”

Before I started on my walk with the Lord, I would have given myself credit for that realization. Now, I know that it is God talking to me when I feel that sudden peace come over me. Our yard is about half an acre, with a decent slope throughout, and it took me two days to finish, but finish I did. I know that I will have to get back out there again in a few days to mow, but I will try to keep a thankful attitude and be grateful for my push mower.

What are you thankful for today? Leave a comment, send me a tweet, or post on my FB page!
